(i) 54

In 54, the unit’s place digit is 4.

Hence, 54 is not divisible by 5.

(ii) 77

In 77, the unit’s place digit is 7.

Hence, 77 is not divisible by 5.

(iii) 106

In 106, the unit’s place digit is 6.

Hence, 106 is not divisible by 5.

(iv) 127

In 127, the unit’s place digit is 7.

Hence, 127 is not divisible by 5.


(v) 152
